Chewy Ginger Cookies with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

I know, I know another cookie post. Just who do I think I am? But, just go with me for a second on this, ok?

  1. These do look delicious-I can even see the zest of the lemon in your frosting! Ginger is such a classic flavor and the tart lemon no doubt compliments the flavor. Great recipe-yum!

  2. I hope people in your dorm are contributing to a Gajdosik Baking Fund. If not, I will happily pay you to make tasty treats exclusively for me!

  3. @Tina – Thanks! I had a ball making them…and eating them!@Jen – I will happily bake for you…come pick me up? 😉

  4. Gosh – now I wish I lived in CCI.
